Lord Harry's Front

Old Lord Harry put up a good front. He hid socks in his pants as a stunt. But, his Lady swore as argyle hit floor that no organ was found to be blunt. 6/17/14 It seems some did not get this poem so a wee bit of 'splaining is above for all you Desi Arnez fans. Definition for FRONT - noun the side or part of an object that presents itself to view or that is normally seen or used first; the most forward part of something. [i.e. the front of his pants] FRONT - noun in a military sense the front is the FIRING LINE FRONT - a fake or false personality This poetic devise is called a double entendre [a play on words]- a word or phrase open to two interpretations, one of which is usually risqué or indecent. ORGAN - is also being used this way - The human ***** is an external male sexual organ - as well as a musical instrument made of pipe ARGYLE - a pattern composed of diamonds of various colors on a plain background, used in knitted garments such as sweaters and socks. or ARE GUILE - someone who is sly or cunning even the word BLUNT has another meaning here since a BLUNT sword would be of little use
